The Language Resource and Writing Center (LRWC) is a cooperative program between McCormick and The Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago to support students whose first language is not English. We help students develop skills through reading/writing and listening/speaking instruction. We also seek to provide a rich global and theological context to help ensure that what McCormick international students experience is relevant for their future ministry.
One critical way in which the LRWC both helps seminary students improve their communicative skills and advances cross-cultural learning is through our individual peer tutoring services. Tutors work with students to improve their conversation, reading, and writing skills. The length and number of tutoring sessions depends upon the needs of the particular student.
